  1. Please report any bugs you come across in FMM19 in this thread. Spotting and reporting bugs as early as possible will help SI "iron them out" which will of course help us as well. I'll add any bugs that are reported to the OP and update it as time goes on. Keep in mind that it is useful for SI to be provided with a save from before the bug occurs to help their investigations if that's possible. It also might be helpful if you report it both here and on the official SI forum: https://community.sigames.com/forum/298-football-manager-mobile-technical-help-and-bugs-forum/ Bugs Pre-orders a mess Pre season matches being removed from fixture list afterwards Team name overlapping logo Player loaned to a team when a permanent transfer was agreed App doesn't appear in full screen Players who are "interested" turn out not to want to come to the club Stuck transfer bug (again) Players requiring work permits to play in countries that don’t require them (TBC by SI) Players randomly promoted from youth team (again) Squad numbers won’t change Players being assigned the same number Training progress not working Buy back fees don't work Manager history page doesn't correlate with actual league table (again) English regen names for youngsters re-generating in Poland VAR being used in situations it wouldn't be in real life Date on manager of the month awards wrong Defensive midfielder STILL getting consistently low ratings for the 4th version running Unrealistic amount of late goals Coaches have no impact on any individual players Match review showing wrong name of goalscorers (again)

    Really don't like the way McLeish is going at Scotland as if he gets the boot then Jack Ross is right at the top of their list isn't he.

  8. 2019 Vibe Premier League Welcome to the second edition of the Vibe Premier League! Last year's "community event of the year" returns for a second edition after the drama (and there was lots of it) last year. It ended up with @PriZe lifting the title after a lucky last minute winner over me in the final, after topping the league phase as well. If you want to read what went down last year in full then click the link below: Chloe the Cow makes an appearance as the preview picture This is an invitational event and the 8 members invited were chosen by @Foxy and myself. We went for a mixture of experienced vibers, as well as people who have made big waves on the site this year, and most importantly can be trusted to submit honestly and each week. Without further ado, let's take a look at the 8 managers battling it out for the crown this year: ------------------------------ Foxy samhardy Nucleus Titjes Woody smoggy90 1759 DutchTony ------------------------------- The Format - How this will run The first thing to say is that this will run similarly, but not identically to last year. The key change is the reduction of participants from 10 to 8 after taking on board advice last year that it potentially "dragged out" and went on for a couple weeks too many. As a result, elimination is no more, so it'll just be 7 weeks of H2Hs with the top 4 qualifying for the all important playoffs. There'll be two main honours to be fought for - The League phase champion, which will be awarded simply to the manager who tops the league after 7 weeks. However, after 7 weeks the top 4 placed managers will enter the all important playoffs - semi finals followed by a final to decide who succeeds @PriZe as Vibe Premier League champion. Points system The unique "real football" score system will remain in place after its success last year. When all the results come in for each week, I'll divide them into 4 separate categories, 1st + 2nd, 3rd + 4th, 5th + 6th and 7th + 8th. The top two points scorers in the round will be awarded 3 points (or goals for the purpose of the matchup) and someone in the lowest category (7th or 8th) will score 0 goals. So, If the highest scorer played the lowest scorer in a round then the higher scorer would win the H2H 3-0. If the two managers facing off against each other were the two lowest scorers then it'd be a 0-0 draw and both would get a point each. The highest scorer in the round will earn a bonus point in the league, with the lowest scoring having a point deducted from their total. Any confusion over this as it's quite hard to explain just take a glance through last year's competition. Plan of attack I'll be posting the fixture list, along with the schedule for the entirety of the competition tomorrow, and we will get underway on Wednesday when the first challenge is posted. Best of luck to all involved and hopefully everyone enjoys following this! Thanks to the Gloucestershire Gladiator @Foxy for providing graphics throughout this tournament.

    It's the draws that have killed us this season, 16 of the fuckers. At least half of those should have been wins so we should be about 15 points better off but just don't have that nouse to kill off games. I've had a feeling for a while Barnsley will just pip us but we just need to keep winning as they won't win all their remaining games and since it's in our hands if we keep winning we will go up. I dread the playoffs as don't fancy two legs against Pompey or Charlton or even Donny.

    Could be a huge game that. Today's results were a bit of a kick in the teeth for us though

    I'm in the South Stand as well but about mid-way up in the upper tier. A slightly more "relaxing" football experience for me today watching Hartlepool v Wrexham. Good win for Pools but Wrexham were very disappointing given they are going for promotion.

    Week 7 - Challenge The Final Countdown So we've made it to the final week and excitingly for the sake of the competition everyone still has something to play for, except Tony of course, whether it's fighting for the top position in the league, or scrapping to make the playoffs. Now this challenge may look daunting and complicated at first but it's only complicated if you don't read everything carefully A perfect way to round off the league season.  Yes we're heading down under for the final leg of the VPL season and this is the most tactical challenge so far in which your choices at the start might be make or break before things even get going. The Challenge As a reward for dealing with all the restrictions and challenges so far you'll be pleased to know that there's no restrictions at all for this challenge, apart from the fact that no transfers in are allowed. That is it, you can keep the squad you start with, don't have to play any 15 year olds, sign any Chinese players or sell your stars! Then you will play the A league season. League Points and GD will be the points, but it's the bonus points that will play the main part of this challenge. I have picked 3 players from each A-League club, these will be your 3 "bonus players" depending on which club you use. During the course of the season you will get 1 point for a goal from a striker, 2 points for an assist from a midfielder and 3 points for a clean sheet from a defender. Now this is where the big choice comes in, the positions for each club are different, and you'll have to choose whether to focus on your defence, midfield, attack, or even all 3 if you want. These bonus points will be added to your total. You can't sign backups for the three players though, if they're injured, then tough luck you'll just have to do without them. The bonus points are only available in the 27 regular league season games, not in the playoffs. You don't need to play the playoffs in this challenge. Points System (27 league games) League Points + Goal Difference Bonus Points (1pt per striker goal, 2pts per midfielder assist, 3pts per defender clean sheet) Bonus Players Clarifications The bonus players must be played in position, but can be played in another area of their position. For example, a central defender can play at left back, but not in midfield. You can't sign any backups for your bonus players. If they get injured, tough luck. Important - Load the November database when booting up the save. No transfers in, but you can sell players. No cup games or the playoffs count towards points, just the 27 regular season games. Any queries just ask me. No coaching badges Only 27 games so I think 5 days is a reasonable deadline, it's shorter because with it being the final week everything will have to be sorted out for the playoffs which are due to start a week on Monday. Deadline - Wednesday, 27th March 11:59PM GMT Rules And Screenshots Required

    Permutations Right then here we go... 🙈 Firstly here's the fixtures for the final week. @Foxy - Has qualified. @smoggy90 - Has qualified trust me on that one. The only way he wouldn't qualify would be if all of the following happened... He has the lowest score of the week He loses to Tony I beat Woody Ian beats Nuke Ian has the highest score of the week @Nucleus - Very similar to Smoggy. All of the following would have to happen for him not to qualify. He loses to Ian whilst having the lowest score of the week or Ian having the highest score of the week I beat Woody @samhardy - Qualifies with a win over Woody. A draw would be enough providing Ian doesn't get the highest score and beat Nuke. Would fail to qualify if I lose to Woody. @1759 - Needs to beat Nuke to have any chance. A win would see him qualify if Woody beats me without the bonus point or if the match ends in a draw. Would fail to qualify if I beat Woody providing the Smoggy madness doesn't happen or if he fails to beat Nuke. @Woody - Qualifies with a win over me and if Ian fails to beat Nuke but needs to win to have any chance. Even a non-bonus point win wouldn't be enough if Ian beats Nuke due to H2H record. The only way to guarantee his place in the playoffs would be to beat me with the bonus point as well. @DutchTony - Can not qualify. Remember that if points are level it goes: To H2H record against each other If the match was a draw, then the overall points from all the challenges combined have been totalled up.

    Realise Clauses hurt

    Teams higher up the pyramid pick non league players up for peanuts season in season out as the sad reality of it is the teams in the Conference and below can't afford to turn the offers down.

    Realise Clauses hurt

    They used to be so much worse when you couldn't set a fee for the clause to be triggered. Pretty much any offer from what the game deemed to be a bigger club than the one you were managing and the player was gone! You clearly haven't read much here 😂

    Week 6 - Results The penultimate week of this year’s VPL is now over with and surely something had to give with how tight the table was. Many of the participants felt this was the toughest challenge to date which confirms its place in next year’s competition as well but let’s see who struggled the least this week as the race for the playoffs is hurtling towards its conclusion. It’s a good challenge for me as well, since all the 15 year olds were as bad as each other it doesn’t require a lot of detail when writing up the match reports  Mr Tree v Nucleus smoggy90 v Woody 1759 v Foxy DutchTony v samhardy Full scorelist for week 6 below. No-one loses a point due to Mr Tree having the lowest score and Foxy picks up the bonus point. And here's the penultimate league table. @Foxy has officially qualified no matter what happens in the last week. @smoggy90 is definitely there too barring some insane occurrences next week whilst @Nucleus looks set to make it too. I move into the top 4 with @1759 and @Woody close behind; any one of us three could still claim a place in the playoffs. @DutchTony stays 7th and will finish there. I'll attempt to do a post with all the permutations for the playoff hunt later tonight but in the meantime you lot can work it out for yourselves Final challenge of the league season will be posted tomorrow.
  24. Much to my shock and no doubt to the abject surprise of some viewers I find myself pressing create new topic and the tag "career" gets selected. It took me till December to get the game this year after it became apparent that it was for the *I think* 5th year running a bug filled mess, however here I am sharing a managerial adventure with you. To get to grips with the circus that is FMM19 my decision was to play a season with the non league side that is closest to me geographically in Gateshead and see where it took me. Or so I thought! Back in the PSP days, otherwise known as when the series was somewhat respectable, one of my favourite things to do on the game was start with a Conference team, sell the whole squad and get a nice budget to refill the squad with players who are realistically too good to play in the division; a lot of L1 + 2 players are available for peanuts and the same goes for the lower divisions in Scotland. So after ripping the squad to shreds and rebuilding it for a total of roughly £50K I was ready to go, and so begun one of the most incredible and magical seasons I've ever played, in my first season on this game. Let's start with a bit of light hearted comedy: Everyone remember this fat wanker? Disappeared off the face of the earth it had seemed, somehow he was one of my signings for free on just 2K a week! Where did it all go wrong for him. Still on nearly double my second highest earner mind. As I'd expected, the league was proving to be a walk in the park with the newly assembled squad: It was all but over at this stage already, a couple of stand out names being striker Ben Hinchcliffe who was picked up on a free transfer and banging in 21 goals by this stage, and the biggest fee spent being £12K on 17 year old attacking midfielder Daniel Adshead from Rochdale, already proving to be a class above this level at such a young age. It wasn't only the league going well though, we'd seen off Leiston in the FA Cup qualifier before absolutely dismantling L2 Stevenage on their own turf. It was at this stage after receiving 15K for achieving the "giant killing" of beating Stevenage (a lot of money for a club Gateshead's size) that I decided the FA Cup was worthy of my full attention, especially when the 2nd round draw sent us to bottom of League 2 Cheltenham. Despite us being a division lower, we were only one place lower in the league pyramid and I expected a comfortable win. Not as comprehensive as Stevenage, but it showed by now that we meant business, and as the big boys enter the cup in the 3rd round, little Gateshead were still in it and hoping for a big draw. So who awaited us in the 3rd round? What excitement lay ahead? Were we heading to Old Trafford to play United or hosting Liverpool at the International Stadium?? No. Collective sighs spread through the town as we were drawn to host Plymouth in the 3rd round. A step up from the last 2 rounds, but with us running away with our division and them 22nd in theirs, I was still optimistic. This was a much tougher test and the step up in class showed as we were 13 minutes away from going out, Plymouth deservedly led at the break before a much improved second half performance saw another free agent Devonte Redmond level up the game and take it to a replay. The aforementioned replay was an absolute stunner, and after it Gateshead fans were starting to realise something special could be happening here: Typically FMM realised it was me playing this and decided to send me to Sunderland in the next round. Just like real life we were sitting 3rd in L1 and this is where I expected the run to come to an end. However my spirits were raised when I saw that the hosts were nowhere near full strength, and another edge of the seat game followed and ended with Adshead completing a stunning hatrick in stoppage time to send us through to the Last 16! Our outrageous luck in the draw continued when we were drawn to play away at MK Dons in the L16 whilst avoiding United, Liverpool, Arsenal and Chelsea, the fairytale showed no signs of ending here with them situated in mid table of League 2. That was until we actually stepped onto the pitch: We were slightly the better team, however twice in the last 10 minutes the run nearly came to a heart breaking halt as they hit the bar before Jake Eastwood was forced into a fantastic stop 3 minutes from time. We got through to the replay, and it was another close affair... But we came out on top coming from behind and qualified for the Quarter Finals! Quarter Finals Teams left in the draw were as follows: Arsenal, Man Utd, Liverpool, Everton, West Ham, Fulham, Norwich, Gateshead. You all know how much the FMM Gods have been shining down on this save. Norwich at home it is. Hi Bobby. Conference v Championship and I expected to lose but played on the counter attack, early signs were that wasn't wise as Norwich carved through us the first half hour but couldn't create anything clear cut. Then just as it looked to be going into HT goalless, an error from Timm Klose set Hinchcliffe though on goal and he rounded the keeper and slotted home! 1-0 it was at the break. It was a dull second half, but Norwich had a couple of further opportunities that they couldn't take and our defensive resilience saw us over the line! Incredible scenes. Semi Finals Madness! Other results saw Arsenal, West Ham and Fulham progress, and we were drawn against the Cottagers whilst Arsenal and West Ham contested the other semi. Surely the run had to end here. They were in no mood to mess around, Mitrovic put Fulham 1 up after just 8 minutes, and they missed another glorious chance after that and it looked set to be a long afternoon at Wembley for Gateshead. The Premier League outfit were then stunned as Ben Hinchcliffe scored twice in a three minute spell, including a tremendous solo effort, before they quickly recovered and Mitrovic bagged his second to level things going into the interval. It was hard to tell who were the vastly superior outfit in this game, Fulham were looking more dangerous, but when Hinchcliffe completed his hatrick on the hour, an FA Cup final was looking staggeringly possible for Gateshead. They saw out the remaining time, with only a couple of scares from Fulham! Gateshead will play West Ham in the FA Cup final, with the Hammers amazingly being the strongest team they've faced in the tournament! The Final And that brings the curtain down on one of the most enthralling seasons I've played on FMM, keep in mind this was the first one I've played on this edition of the game! We ended the league dominant: But, obviously it was the FA Cup that made this season magical and hopefully you enjoyed the journey as much as what I did. I'll make a prediction now that if I started this save again and played the season 1000 times, I'd never replicate this again. Same goes for anyone reading this. My squad was good, maybe lower L1/upper L2 standard, but nowhere near the squad of Fulham or West Ham, or even Norwich or Sunderland. Sure you can look at the run and see how lucky the draw was, and that we were minutes from going out three times, but this is a season I'll remember for a very long time. Thanks for reading
